I use 3 exploits/glitches throughout the run.

I try to avoid taking hits to avoid dying, but sometimes it's impossible to dodge damage without sacrificing speed. I don't die in the run at all. I do not restart the game at any point. I technically control 2 characters throughout the run but there is no choice provided by the game. It is entirely linear.

The goal of this movie is completing the game as fast as possible without losing a life.

Lilo & Stitch was a game released in 2002 as a tie in to the movie. It's a shoot 'em up style game when playing as Stitch and a stealth and avoidance puzzle game when playing as Lilo. The game takes place at some point after the events of the movie.

For my first submitted movie I wanted to do a game from my childhood that wasn't already entirely optimized by a die hard community. I wanted to be on the front line of discovering tricks, routes and exploits that no casual player would find, and even things that runners of the game didn't know about. The skill of the execution is deeply satisfying to me and I hope others can be inspired by this movie, learn something, and make their own runs finding new things with their large and expanding pools of knowledge.

While creating this movie I followed the route done by the runner Wally ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c27vtjIYTEE ) which was a giant help in the maze-like levels in Lilo's sections so go give him some love.

ThunderAxe31: Welcome to TASVideos, Corvus!

This TAS is a nice first attempt, as I couldn't find any obvious mistake or sloppy execution. While the run may look simple, I have to note that finding and implementing improvements wouldn't be too much easy.

As for the entertaining side, I have to note that the movie is visually slow-paced and lacking enough action diversity. Also, the votes of the audience were mixed.

With all that said, accepting this movie for Vault.
